Hi!dennis,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

Psoriasis is definitely a chronic and a frustrating disease .There are various treatments available ,but it is important to understand that we should try to suppress the lesions with these and then try to maintain it further. Over the years you might need something or the other to maintain yourself.Initially you might require aggressive therapy.
You have not mentioned your age and marital status ,kindly do so.
Various options are as follows:
1) oral methotrexate ,cyclosporin ,acetretin etc.
2) topical steroids , tazarotene, vitamin D3 derivatives, tacrolimus,tar ,antralin etc.
3) phototherapy - PUVA ,NB-UVB(latest)
4) Biologics (injectable-latest).

The result of combination of all this is excellent.
Apart from this one should understand that there are certain aggravating factors also which one remember. For example ,anti hypertensive medicines ,ibuprofen ,anti psychotic medicines can aggravate psoriasis.
Since I am not aware of what all treatmnmet you have taken and with what results ,i may not be able to guide you specifically.For details you can visit my website www.skinhairclinic.com.

I hope I've answered your query ,if you have any further questions you can write back to us.

I am 68 yrs. of age male and suffering from psoriasis since last 2 months. Initially it affected my forearms. Occasional Itchings were severe and abrasions seen with scratching. My dermatologist prescribed a steroid cream, an Alaspan tablet, Mild liquid soap and greasy moisturisers. The problem subsided for few days and now it re-appears on more areas on upper arms, neck, knees and below. Itching sensation returns. My doctor did not mentioned about possible reccurence. My dilemas -- should I go for natural remedies, if I hold back from scratcing will it improve conditions or do I again return to medicines? What are best solutions for each? Thank you in advance.
